Explore the Power of Extracurriculars

We use extracurriculars to strengthen college applications and empower students with opportunities for personal growth.

Colleges Typically Evaluate Activities Holistically

When it comes to extracurriculars and college admissions, there are no hard and fast rules for success. Most colleges and universities take a holistic approach, evaluating applicants and their participation in extracurriculars on a case-by-case basis.

Underachieving and Overachieving Are Equally Detrimental

Some parents attempt to gain a competitive edge by enrolling their children in as many extracurricular activities as their schedules will allow. Other parents, frustrated with their child’s lack of engagement, give up altogether. Unfortunately, both of these approaches are neither healthy nor effective.

The Vested Academics extracurricular approach helps students explore activities that interest them and admissions committees. Here’s how . . .


Experienced Consultants

Professional guidance

With decades of experience in higher education admissions, our consulting team understands how colleges evaluate applicants and their extracurriculars and level of participation.

Cultivate new interests

By working one-on-one with students, we guide our clients toward new extracurriculars, encouraging them to try things that both utilize their strengths and lie outside of their comfort zones.

Experiential Learning

At Vested Academics, our consultants believe students who have invested some time in either observing or assisting a professional get more out of their college experiences.


Explore Majors & Careers

Our consultants suggest extracurriculars, like job shadowing, internships, and part-time jobs, to help students investigate different college majors and future career paths.


Strategic Selections

We work one-on-one with each student throughout the fall, spring, and summer, allowing them to find extracurriculars that align with their educational goals.
